Reviews Traveler Going Home


Going Home

All right, Traveler don't waste time, so neither will I. The Cleveland punk/melodic hardcore group write short, enjoyable pieces that are stripped down to their absolute bare essentials. The four tracks of their debut EP Going Home take only around seven minutes of your time to listen to. The songs are chock full of happy melodies, major chords, and general jubilance that work well alongside their vocalist's screams. They create a really lighthearted mood that makes it very easy to sit back and enjoy yourself. If only it didn't end so quickly--don't lose your focus on the album for too long, because it's over before you know it. Traveler aren't bringing anything new to the table either; this is stuff you could hear from pretty much any melodic hardcore band. But what they do, they do well, and it's clear they're happy making this music. And it'll certainly make you happy to hear it, too. It may be nothing new or noteworthy, but it's an enjoyable diversion nonetheless. It's also available for free download, so you have nothing to lose by grabbing it. And by now the first track of the album is already over.
